FOI Request Business Rates Relief for Pubs
I would like to submit an FOI request regarding the Business Rates Relief for pubs announced in the March 2017 Budget, of £1000 for pubs with a rateable value under £100,000.
Regarding the Scheme, I would like to know:

(b) If the answer to (a) is yes, how much (in £s) has already been allocated to local pubs?
(c) If the answer to (a) is yes, what are the names of the pubs that have received relief?
(d) If the answer to (a) is no, why not?
a. Not applicable, as the scheme for which the information was requested does not apply to Scottish local authorities.
b. Not applicable.
c. Not applicable
d. As per answer to a. this scheme is only for local authorities in England.
